Fodor's Expert Review La Jaquita Baya

$$ Miramar Casual

La Jaquita, as it is known by locals, is one of the city's best farm-to-table restaurants. Chef Xavier Pacheco elevates commonly home-cooked Puerto Rican dishes. At this casual eatery in Miramar there's a small recreated farmers' market in the corner, which showcases the chef's committment to sourcing directly from the producer. While you browse the menu, a complimentary pigeon pea escabeche with plantain chips will be brought out. The menu changes frequently, but staples like the fish taquitos, smoked pork, and homemade sausage are fixed items. The house drink is the white or red guarapeta, a sangria made with guarapo (sugar cane juice).
